  1. The entries refer to the number of mature miRNAs with unique sequences in the family, not the total number of miRNA loci in the family (for rice the number of known loci has been listed in brackets). Note that the misclassified novel miRNAs bdi-miR2508 and tae-miR2029 in Wei et al. [33] have been included as members of the miR397 family, while tae-miR2025 has been included as a member of the miR398 family. The numbers in brackets in the barley column refers to additional sequences present in the current study that were not included in our results because of sequence similarity to sequences in various repeat databases.
  2. *By conserved miRNA families we mean those that are present in Arabidopsis and at least one monocot.
